After 50 episodes, the series underwent a format change and changed its name to "New Maple Town Stories: Palm Town Chapter." In this new series, Patty Rabbit moves away from the forested Maple Town (thus making the title rather misleading) and to a new setting, the tropical Palm Town. Waiting for her there are a new group of friends and troublemakers. None of the other Maple Town denizens tag along, making Patty the only regular character in both series. This move proved unpopular, and the series ended about a year after the change. Note that none of the Palm Town episodes were ever dubbed into English.

''Maple Town'' (''Maple Town Monogatari'') was an animated television series, created by Chifude Asakura, produced by Creator/ToeiAnimation of Japan and originally broadcast on that country's Creator/TVAsahi in 1986 and 1987. The show centered on a community of anthropomorphic animals; its main characters were Patty Rabbit and her friend, Bobby Bear. The town was an impossibly friendly, cheerful place, with the only trouble being caused by the thieving swindler, Wild Wolf, and occasionally by the bratty but generally good-hearted [[AlphaBitch Fanny Fox]]. The series is also noteworthy for being an early directorial job for Junichi Sato and Kunihiko Ikuhara, who would both become world famous for their work on ''Anime/SailorMoon'' (in one episode of the latter, Usagi Tsukino has a stuffed rabbit doll bearing a very strong resemblance to Patty).
